Barenbrug has done a lot of research into the fructan (sugar) contents of different grasses. Some grass species are known for their low fructan contents, but even within a species, some varieties contain more fructan than others. The varieties in Horse Master® contain an impressive 50% less fructan than varieties of grass intended for cattle and sheep.
Barenbrug analyses the fructan contents of more than 70 grass varieties a year. The following graph shows you the great differences in the fructan contents of different varieties. The varieties in Horse Master® contain on average less than half of the fructan that is to be found in cattle grass varieties.
